XeVision Releases New LED HID Landing and Taxi Lights

High Performance, Lightweight, Robust Aircraft Lighting

One constant gripe among pilots flying frequent backcountry landings, among all the supposed advancements over the decades, is the anemic, unimpressive performance of factory lighting systems even on new aircraft.

It could be forgiven to lag some time behind the automotive industry, but even newer LED lights seem inferior to high-performance HID equipment used on high-end cars and custom off-road light bars. When bringing in a flight in the dead of night, facing an unlit, rural strip, pilots want as much light they can get. Ideally, a landing light for a bush plane would have sufficient throw and coverage, while being bright enough to identify hazards and critters seemingly eager to jump into the prop on approach. 

No longer put to shame by their automotive cousins, owners can now reportedly improve their lighting with an all-in-one solution. XeVision announced their XeTREME LED lighting line, with improved, 35, 50, and 75 watt HID systems. Boasting high-powered, high-intensity LED fixtures for landing, and taxi lights compact and efficient, the lights should simplify the trouble of installation with modular, simple design. Warranted for 2000 hours or 5 years and backed by simple, robust LED tech, the XeTreme systems will put to rest bulb-shopping for good.

XeVision recently demonstrated their line at the High Sierra Fly-in & STOL Drag event near Reno, Nevada with multiple evening and dusk flights. 

The new lights are said to embody XeVision's slogan, "the sun is our only competitor". With a host of improvements to their previous series of lights. Now, output is more than doubled over the nearest competitor, with not only higher-output, but longer throw as well. With three user-selectable modes, pilots can choose the strength appropriate to their flight profile, or set the lights to a strobe setting for maximum daytime visibility. XeVision states that collision avoidance is greatly enhanced by the effect when compared to traditional wig-wag lighting, along with vast improvements in bird strike avoidance. The lights are designed for high-output, with active cooling built into the LED housing for sustained performance and longevity, a must for extended use in aircraft where there is no backup.
